A documentary based on Amanda Ripley’s non-fiction bestseller explores the discrepancies between America’s struggling education system and top-performing schools in other countries by sending four American teens abroad to see how it’s done. Students from local high schools in Wyoming, Maine, Orlando, and the Bronx relocate to Finland, South Korea, Switzerland and the Netherlands, gaining insights on how U.S. high-school education can and needs to be reformed.
